As more people are getting vaccinated (as should you!) and restrictions are getting looser, we’re slowly starting to travel again and getting to enjoy the events we loved to go to. Our very own fellow podcaster Sean got to go to this year’s New York Comic-Con last weekend and if you follow his Instagram, it looks like he had a blast.
